Guardians of the Galaxy had one boring intro that you will soon forget the moment the movie kicks off. I was looking forward to meeting Rocket (A genetically modified raccoon who is a bounty hunter and mercenary. He is a weapon expert able to make weapons out of the things around him and a masterful battle tactician), and the moment Rocket was introduced I could not help, but wish that he remained on screen the whole time I was watching.

I loved the idea that he (Rocket) never saw a bad moment to make an inappropriate joke. Then there were the other characters all memorable in their way making it a sure thing that I will definitely be looking forward to a part 2 of this film and will be watching this movie.

For someone like me who is having his first introduction to The Guardians of the Galaxy I have to say that the director and screen writers (James Gunn directed and wrote the screenplay with Nicole Perlman) extremely delivered.

The Guardians of the Galaxy are a fictional space superhero team, who first appeared in the Marvel universe in 2008. They are a bunch of misfits who were bound together by different courses, but happened to be in the same vicinity as the other (based on this movie).

Star-Lord/Peter Quill (Chris Pratt) stole a mystical orb that the villain Ronan the accuser wants. The orb has infinite energy which Ronan wants to use to destroy a planet named Xander. Ronan sent Gamora (Zoe Saldana) after Quill to get the orb, but Gamora wants the orb for her own personal motive. After Quill stole the orb a bounty was placed on his head, a bounty that bounty hunters Rocket (Bradley Cooper) and Groot (Vin Diesel) wanted, so they too went after Quill.

All four of them get themselves arrested and thrown in Jail where they met Drax the Destroyer (Dave Bautista), who was ready to do all it takes to get revenge at Ronan for killing his family.

With all this together, what the movie delivered was humor, action and memorable lines all the way.
One of such memorable lines is, "I am Groot"

The difference in the movie line-up from the original initial line-up is the exclusion of Captain Marvel and Adam Warlock.

The movie was a huge commercial success, making more than four times its $ 170 million budget, making it a must that Disney has put in for a sequel.

Have you seen this wonderful movie called Guardians of the Galaxy?
